He did mention that fewer labs reported with this being a Sunday and that we shouldn't look too much into the low numbers. "Furthermore, no documented evidence of recent voter fraud in the form of impersonation in Kentucky has been presented", Beshear, Kentucky's former attorney general, said. We will continue with Warren County Schools NTI days. There were five new deaths confirmed, however.

Gov. Beshear says he recommends following the CDC guidelines about wearing a cloth mask in public.

"How well we do social-distancing matters.When you think about the fact it could be the difference in 11,000 Kentuckians, it shows you how important that is". "That's what's going to keep us healthy".

One area where the governor has continued to encounter resistance to his orders is in some community churches, which have continued to hold in-person services.

The governors' daily addresses have become appointment viewing for many Kentuckians and meme pages devoted to Beshear are popping up on Facebook.

"We have at least three examples of church services spreading the virus in Kentucky and we have multiple deaths tied to it", Beshear said. Forty people have reportedly died from the virus. "My faith would never let me put someone else in that position".

The governor also referenced modeling done on a website known as covidactnow.org, which projected how many cases and deaths could occur in Kentucky over the next three months, based on four scenarios: limited action, stay at home with poor compliance, stay at home with strict compliance and total lockdown.
